Guest Post: Valkyrie Vampire Ball by Cornelia Amiri

Valkyrie Vampire Ball

Do you like vampires? What about fey? Are you intrigued by Scottish lore? Do you appreciate a strong, handsome man in a kilt? If you said yes to any or all of the above, step underhill to the dwelling place of the baobhan sith. They are waiting for you. They’ve saved you a dance.
Who or what are the baobhan sith, (bah vawn shee) you ask? They are vampiric fey who roam the Scottish highlands. All of them are women, no men. They are voluptuous and enticing beauties always garbed in green dresses. Also, they have talons, no fangs. Like other vampires, they drink human blood and they fry in the sunlight. Many call them dancing vampires as they look for young men coming from the pub at night. The baobhan sith dance with them until the men are exhausted then they transform their nails to talons. The dancing grows rough as the baobhan sith rake their nails across their dance partner’s back. They claw at the men’s skin, draining their blood, so they can drink it.

My Dancing Vampire series is a modern take on the baobhan sith, the tales of seven baobhan sith sisters. They are on the hunt for men and in each book that quest turns to romance. Valkyrie Vampire Ball, the 5th novella in my Dancing Vampire series comes out November 28th.  It is available for preorder now at Ellora’s Cave.
So Vampire Valkyrei Ball makes 5 books so far:  Dance of the Vampires, Vampire Highland Fling, Ever So Bonnie A Vampire, One Dance With A Vampire, and Valkyrie Vampire Ball.  I call them – Five Shades Of Fey.

The baobhan sith—vampiric fey—Mordak and her sisters search the highlands for men to dance with and drink from. The moment Mordak spots Tor, she burns for his touch and yearns for the taste of his lips in a lingering kiss. Before she can sway her hips in a seductive dance to enchant Tor, three Valkyrie land in front of him. Mordak is not about to let the Norse blondes fly off with the man she chose.
Tor never expected to run into six gorgeous women on his way to the pub. It’s the redhead, Mordak, who catches his eye. When she fights the Valkyrie and saves his life, he knows she’s the woman for him. But Mordak lives in the fey realm where he can’t go and she promised her sisters she’d never fall in love with a human. Can he escape the Valkyrie who want to slay him and win Mordak’s love even though he’s only human?

The last book in the series, Some Vampires Shimmy will be coming in December.
